In class we have begun reading aloud the book “Matilda” by Roald Dahl.  I would ask that if your child has not yet seen the motion picture to please not allow them to see it.  I would like the children to be engaged in the book and enjoy the surprise in book form.  If they wish to read along with me in their own copy of the book that is certainly allowed, but not required.  We will read about a chapter a day as we follow the adventure of Matilda’s life.  Upon finishing the book we’ll watch the movie and compare/contrast the book to the movie.  Be sure to ask your child what happened in today’s read aloud!  :-)
